A User Reported

Whenever I restart my system. My screen rotate automatically. I recently installed Ubuntu 18.04.

However I observed for another laptop for which I have installed same Ubuntu version, this is not happening. This issue can be temporary resolved by typing below command.

Type below command to switch to normal screen

$ xrandr -o normal

Try this command to stop and disable

$ sudo systemctl stop iio-sensor-proxy.service
$ sudo systemctl disable iio-sensor-proxy.service

Try this command to remove

$ sudo apt-get remove iio-sensor-proxy
